It’s November 1st! Time to get your NaBloPoMo on.

November is a big month for writers — you’ve probably read about NaNoWriMo, which kicks off today.

Not interested in writing a length book, but looking for a challenge that’ll push you as a blogger? Try NaBloPoMo, National Blog Posting Month, which also starts now: one post a day, however short or long, every day in November. The topic is up to you, as is the format — longform, photo essay, haiku, webcomic, or quick musings; they’re all fair game.

To participate, just start posting! Tag your posts with “NaBloPoMo” to help other bloggers (and us!) find you. You’ve also got until November 5th to add your blog to the official NaBloPoMo blogroll on BlogHer, where you can grab a badge for your blog.

(Why register for the blogroll? One word: community. Oh, and one more: prizes.)

We’ll have more on NaBloPoMo next week, but the clock starts now. Check out our new Blog Event Survival Guide for inspiration, and get posting!

  1. I wish I had the time to write a post a day or better yet, a full-length novel in a month.
    But it just isn’t going to happen.
    I’ll be sending moral support along to all the participants, though!


  2. Hi,

    I have a few questions:
    1. Due to time differences, it was 11PM here in the Philippines when I received this post about NaBloPoMo, can I still join even if in my time, my first post in November for the NaBloPoMo is November 2? Technically I missed the first day.
    2. I currently participating 2 blog challenges in parallel: the single woman’s 30-day blog challenge, and the 30-day drawing challenge. Can I just use the NaBloPoMo tag for each of my entry in both blog challenges?

    Thanks in advance!


    1. No worries! Just start posting today. If you want to be really thorough, write a post and date it yesterday πŸ™‚

      Also, feel free to use the NaBloPoMo tag — posting every day is posting every day, no matter why.


  3. This is going to be a lot of work, but I think well worth the effort in the end. Let’s cheer each other on and help keep everyone going! Good luck!


  4. Okay, so I just heard about this whole thing a few minutes ago– but now I see people writing from prompts. Do you HAVE to do the prompts in order to participate? Because I’m just a promptless kind of girl, but I like the idea of binging on daily posts.


    1. Not at all; the only requirement is one post each day. Prompts are just tools to help you explore a new topic, or to give you a boost on days when your inspiration well’s running a bit dry.


      1. Aha– okay. Cool. Autonomy is key. Until like day 12 when I’m all “oh em gee what do I write.”

        Also, I appreciate that you used a semicolon in a comment. Don’t see that all too often.



    Can someone tell of an easier way to get to my “COMMENTS” section other then having to work my way through “SETTINGS”?


  6. Can men enter this blog event? The web site owner states that everyone who enters her site…are men therefore excluded from this event? Waiting for your answer.


  7. Have been trying to join this event since 4 a.m., must be overwhelmed with traffic, or else they are being ran by the government (the same people who are “fixing” the healthcare website.) No matter what I have tried, I cannot post a comment and it took hours before the site finally showed my URL. Still, I’m looking forward to participating in this event! Write On!
